Our Church Family

Please keep our family of the week, John & Dana van Gyssel and their family in your prayers.

The flowers will be delivered to Pearl Meindersma this week in honour of her 80th birthday. We thank God for her ministry of music here at Bethel and pray that our Heavenly Father will bless her with His love and peace in the year that lies ahead.

Ruth has returned to the Lacombe hospital since she is able to breathe a bit better. She will gladly accept visitors in the hospital.

We would like to express are sincere thanks and appreciation to all our church family who have supported and encouraged us in the recent passing of our loved one. We were and are really blessed by all the prayers that have been sent up to the Lord on our behalf, To all who have phoned, sent cards and flowers, provided meals and visited in the hospital, and at home, we are truly grateful. We put our hope and trust in our Heavenly Father who is our source of strength, comfort and peace. To Him we give all honour, praise and thanks.

Yours in Christ, Carol De Waal and family
